Mission statement

The Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF), the flagship program of the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard School of Public Health, contributes to shaping collective efforts to improve the quality of maternal health care worldwide. The MHTF is a facilitator of partnerships to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity around the world. By bringing together a diverse community of global health experts, the MHTF works to:

  • build consensus and provide a neutral platform for dialogue around critical maternal health issues;
  • expand access to and synthesize emerging knowledge and evidence on maternal health;
  • strengthen maternal health education, leadership and technical capacity in countries with high burdens of maternal mortality;
  • increase the evidence base on strategies to improve and assess the content and quality of maternal health care.
